In a Final Rule published on December 28, 2015, EPA has revised its regulations to more clearly describe the active and inert ingredients permitted in products eligible for the minimum risk pesticide exemption (40 CFR 152.25(f)). EPA is doing this by codifying the inert ingredients list and reformatting the active and inert ingredients lists, adding specific chemical identifiers (through the use of Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers), where available, for each eligible active and inert ingredient.

In addition, labeling requirements for minimum risk products have been revised so that producers of these products must list designated label display names of ingredients and producers must provide contact information on product labeling. The compliance date for the revised label requirements is February 26, 2019. In anticipation of this date, some states that require registration are expecting revisions to labels to be completed and submitted with a producer’s 2019 renewal.
